Transforming Scientific Advancement intoInnovation

Remote sensing technology is playing an increasingly important role in the agriculture sector by providing timely spectral information which can be used to assess the biophysical indicators of plant health, to quantify crop yield, to map the soil quality, and to improve agro-ecological forecasts. This book project will compile the latest applications of Remote Sensing in agriculture using spaceborne, airborne and drones’ geospatial data.

Consider your contributions within (but not exclusively) the following sections:

Section 1- Principles of Precision Agriculture (PA).

Precision agriculture, e-agriculture, Phenotyping, Artificial Intelligence, machine learning/neural networks

Section 2-PA Practices for soil management.

Digital Soil Mapping, soil maps and remotely sensed data, crop variability, Estimation of Field Nutrient, Integrated nutrient management, Soil nutrient modelling (SAR, thermal and fluorescence imaging)

Section 3- PA practices for irrigation water management.

Application of remote sensing in water management, Irrigation management, SVAT–groundwater model for water resources simulation, Irrigation methods, Irrigation scheduling and water use efficiency

Section-4- PA practices for crop management

Estimation of Crop Biomass, Phenotyping of crops Sensor, precision crop protection, detection of pests, Space monitoring of weeds, pests and diseases, SVAT-crop growth model

Section-5- Advanced modelling practices in PA
